obama to get the very latest on moammar gadhafi and whether the u.s. will have to go even further, even giving arms to the rebels in libya. today, the rebels seemed to be under assault by gadhafi's forces, taking big casualties. and at the same time, in the nearby country of syria, their president was forced to promise big changes there, streets filled with protesters. but in my interview with the president, i started by asking about gadhafi, and those reports that he is trying to make a deal. as of this moment, any sign gadhafi wants out? >> well, i think what we're seeing is that the circle around gadhafi understands that the noose is tightening. that their days are probably numbered. and they're going to have to think through what their next steps are. but as i have been very clear about throughout, there are certain things they can do that will send a signal that he's ready to go. until that time, we're going to keep on applying pressure and hopefully he's going to be getting the message soon. >> reporter: if gadhafi winds up in a villa some place in zimbabwe, with no war crimes tri

during his speech? >> he'll talk about how the mission has been a success and now it's time for the u.s. to step back and play a support role. these are some of the questions that we're going to be asking our guests today on "this week." secretary of state hillary clinton and secretary of defense robert gates are questions along the lines of how long are we going to be there involved in this military action? in fact, that's a question specifically i put to defense secretary gates. do you think we'll be gone by the end of the year? will the mission be over by the end of the year? >> i don't think anybody knows the answer to that. >> and that's a difficult point for the president to have to make to the american people that we don't know how long we're going to be there so you'll probably see president obama kind of skate over the end game specifically. he'll try to paint the fact that we're receding back to a support role as an exit strategy of sorts. >> so a big question mark there. and, jake, the white house is also trying to make a clear distinction between military action in libya its
